  2. First, we hear our customers each time they express their frustration over delays and releases dates not being met.  Let me remind everyone we are a small firm.  We do not have 20+ developers working for us so we have to prioritize our work. 

    Let me address Worldwide Airports:

    1.) The original version for FSX, FSX Steam, and P3D 1 to 3 took 2 YEARS to develop.  The product as it stands works for those sims. 

    2.) When P3D v4 was released we had to redo ALL the textures, which is the core of the product.  So what you are talking about is redoing what 2 years to develop all over again.  What that entails is fixing the texture, putting it into the sim and seeing if that fixed it.  If not we have repeat that process until the texture is complete and ready.  There are 15 GIGS of textures.  That just doesn't happen overnight.

    Just as a reminder WE ARE NOT OBLIGATED to make a product work for the next simulator.  There is no written law that states we have to support the next version of a simulator.  This has been assumed and it is not right to place this demand on developers.  

    In reality, we should charge a fee for the update and the man hours, but we are giving this as a FREE update to all customers.

    Where things stands now, we are about to finish the third cycle of beta testing.  This included not just our beta team, but also our Insider Program.  Provided there are no major issues our next step will be to prepare the product for deployment.

     

    Let me now address the delay in other products:

    The consistent updates to Prepar3D has put a lot of extra work on our team that was never there 5 years ago.  Also, we originally only had 1 product to update in the past.  Now we have:

    • REX 4 Texture Direct
    • REX 4 Soft Clouds
    • REX 4 Weather Architect
    • WX Advantage Radar
    • REX Worldwide Airports
    • REX Sky Force

    This doesn't include the new products we currently are developing.

    So having these many products to keep up to date with a small team can be quite a challenge.  So some are asking why has it taken so long for SIMAIR and some other things to get done.  It is because every time there is a change in a sim, each one of these products has to be re-tested.  Then if something needs to be fixed we have to drop what we are working on and fix it. 

    I am not writing this to sound like we are victims here, but to merely communicate our perspective.  Our goal is to satisfy our customers, but understand we have limited resources and things cannot happen overnight.

    This is looking really good! Well done.

    You mentioned that the lighting changes when a weather systems builds, from the demo, when the thunderstorm grew things still looked very bright is this adjustable or was that just the Alpha and things will be improved? 

    Thanks

    What you are seeing in the demo is an alpha test.  Everything in there is manually done.  With the full version, we are working on these processes will be automated - if you choose to have them automated.


  5. REX WORLDWIDE AIRPORTS HD - STATUS UPDATE: DEBUG PHASE

    6/20/2018 -

    We had to make some modifications to the enhanced airport's textures for KSLC.  We will be implementing these in the next build for testing.  This should be our last testing cycle before release.  We hope to have this build for testing available to the beta team by Friday or Monday.

    Greetings,

    I purchased REX Skyforce 3d, only to find it doesn't have runway or other airport textures. Can I run Skyforce 3D and REX texture direct, without messing up the clouds that come with REX Skyforce?

    I love the clouds, but I want to update all my airports to better runway textures and lighting , like what came with REX tecture direct.

    Any help is appreciated. 

    I would strongly recommend Worldwide Airports. http://rexworldwideairports.com/

    This will be receiving the P3Dv4 update very soon.
